When my son has his friends over, I try to be accommodating. Example if I make hot chocolate for my son, I'll make some for all of them. Some of them don't have parents around so I'll go out of my way to help them with homework, fix their bikes, give them clothes that my son's outgrown etc. My son hates me being a mom to his friends and I'm not sure why.
His behavior hurts his friends' feelings and a couple of kids have stopped coming over because of it. I told him if he keeps this up he'll end up loosing all the friends he's got but he doesn't seem to get it. Is it hormones because he's a tween? I noticed he's much more emotional over things that really shouldn't matter lately. These kids ask for my help with things so I kinda feel bad telling them no I can't help them. Should I back off some? Maybe I'm too involved?
